Salmon Braid

 This yummy delight reminds me of a fancy tuna melt! If you like baked pastries, melted cheese and lots of flavor - you'' love this! I've made it for years and also had something similar to it at a local seafood restaurant. Mmm Mmm Mmm!

Salmon Braid

  • 4 cooked salmon fillets
  • 1 cup chopped dill pickles
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 cup dice tomatoes
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • salt & pepper

Roll out crescent roll dough on a flour surface. Roll into one large rectangle and place on a cookie sheet. Take a sharp knife and make diagonal cuts down each side about two inches apart leaving room down the middle to spread the salmon.

 In a large bowl mix remaining ingredients together, reserving one cup of cheese. Spread down the center of dough. Take dough slices and braid, crossing over the salmon spread. Once dough is braided sprinkle remaining cheese over the top and bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes.  Check the center before taking out of the oven. The center cooks the longest and if the dough is still gooey it will need to bake longer. Enjoy!
